Subject: Pay No Attention To The Flickering Light
Narrated (of course!) by Burgess Meredith, 'Dialogue With Life' is a rather general trip through the modern wonders of medicine and how it it's making people live longer lives because of it. From birth, to adolescence, the common doctor is not now purveyor of doom, as the film hammered over and over again by indicating the hospital was a place to die at one point.. and now it's a place to get well.
**REVIEW UPDATE**
Since my initial review back in September 2003, I got a chance to finally see the 2nd half, and let me tell you, it's the second half when things get going here. This half focuses on the new claptrap technology doctors were using to make people better (Check the brainwave generator thing!) and footage of a birth (just breathe into this mask.. keep breathing!). I think this whole affair still rates around a 3 star rating though.
